During the recent Annual Scientific Meeting of the Groningen Engineering Center the Engineering Center Best Thesis Award 2020 was warded to Bernoulli graduate Godliver Owomugisha for her thesis Computational intelligence & modeling of crop disease data in Africa. The thesis presents the application of machine learning techniques to solve a real world challenge related to pest and disease control in the agricultural sector. Godliver’s thesis was selected because of the high scientific impact of her papers, the strong interdisciplinary engineering focus and the societal/environmental impact with the aim to helping farmers to protect crops from disease and African regions to secure food production. Congratulations to her and her supervisors Prof. Michael Biehl, Prof. Nicolai Petkov (Intelligent Systems), Ernest Mwebaze and J.A. Quinn.
Godliver will receive EUR 1.000 to be spent on a scientific conference or visit of choice.
